I head back from Israel today and will no doubt arrive to email inboxes filled with unread messages. I will also return, though, to the home of the 2009 Think Tank Softball League Champions. Yes, we are officially the most competitive nerds in DC. Well played, Defcons, and an especial note of congratulations goes out to team coach and captain Shannon O'Reilly. Ridiculous at softball, that girl, and as competitive as the rest of us. Which is to say ... unhealthily so.
